The Republican Murder Suicide Campaign Pitch

Republicans are telegraphing their intent to continue their fight against Obama’s agenda into his second term. Some have brazenly used their own intransigence as an argument for a Mitt Romney presidency: Elect the Republican, or we’ll keep the country ungovernable.
Given the declared McConnell priority of defeating of Obama over actually helping govern the country, the job for which he was elected and is paid, given the bizarre shoot the hostage even though the hostage is us drama of the debt ceiling debacle, can anybody be surprised that this would seem a congenial line to Republicans? As I never tire of repeating: Whenever a right wing politician declares all government wasteful, criminal, and corrupt you should pay close attention, because he is announcing his plans.
